BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – A water main break was reported Saturday morning around 8:07 a.m. in Boardman.

The road was buckling and cracking on Southern Blvd. from York Ave. to Charles Ave., so the Boardman police had to shut down that quarter-mile stretch of the road.

The road runs behind Lariccia’s Italian Market Place Restaurant and Boardman Park.

Aqua Ohio and several engineers responded to and worked on the scene.

The cause of the break is still under investigation, but officials said weather is not considered as a factor.
